Map Provides Context for Reforms of Teacher Evaluation Systems

teacher eval mapSince 2009, more than 35 states have made policy changes to their system of teacher evaluations. Many factors have driven the increase of teacher evaluation overhauls, including federal grant programs such as Race to the Top and the Teacher Incentive Fund, as well as the administration’s No Child Left Behind waivers.

Recently, a network of education groups worked together to create an interactive map that shows which states have made changes to their teacher evaluation systems and what those changes include. If you navigate to the link above or the one at the bottom of this post, you will be able to zoom in on the map and see specific changes by state.

The map was created by a combination of organizations, including the New America Foundation, National Council on Teacher Quality, Education Week, U.S. Department of Education, and Center on Great Teachers and Leaders at the American Institute for Research.
